Selling your home is a long process and can be difficult. There are many dos and don’ts when it comes to preparing your home to be sold. Here are four ways to get your home ready to sell so that it will be on the market for as short a time as possible.

Call Your Real Estate Agency

Make sure you’re following the advice of your real estate agency. There are typically very specific tips that your agent can give you about your property. If selling your home quickly is a priority, listen to your agent’s advice about cleaning, repairs, and other preparation you might need.

Make Repairs

Although it may seem like a waste to put the time and money into repairing a home you’re planning to move out of, it will be worth it in the long run. People will notice that loose floorboard or leaky faucet. First impressions matter, and people will remember these small problems. You may also want to think about repainting rooms to neutral colours. You may be accustomed to the bright colours or gaudy wallpaper, but potential buyers will be distracted by such décor and miss seeing the good qualities of your home.

Clean Your Home

Getting the house clean and showing-ready is a big part of preparing your home for sale. Make sure that all open areas are clean in addition to any spaces like closets, bathtubs, and other nooks and crannies that might accumulate dust. Stay on top of laundry and dirty dishes. And wipe down counters and surfaces each day so that your home stays neat and presentable.

Stage Your Home

Let’s talk about the hard part of selling your home: staging. Everything needs to be staged to look functional, organized, and inviting. A pretty home is a warm home that people want to live in. For staging tips, many people turn to inspiration sources like Instagram and Pinterest for home décor ideas. Staging can also include everything from picking up regularly to keeping walls nick-free and making beds up properly. Staging makes a big difference when it comes garnering interest in your home.
